Re: New tool day!


11 1/2 x 4 3/4, the flusher is to try, never used one. My initial plan is to use it mainly for hot mud jobs. But who knows, might use it all the time, might never use it, lol

Re: New tool day!


I'm fed up of snips so I bought this for my Trim-Tex beads!
Think it will need another blade as it's only got 24 teeth!
(Bazooka Joe will be proud as I bought from USA)

Cool Richie. I think I recall someone saying if you turn the blade around it will still cut but won't grab the plastic.

That's right, I did that all the time when I was putting vinyl siding on, you still need a finer blade. If it's grabbing when you try a finer blade, turn the blade around.

Re: New tool day!


Ordered new tools last week. Hopefully they come tomorrow. New tapetech boxes with exstendable handle and a mudrunner. What kind of a learning curve does the mudrunner have ? I've never ran one or even seen one in person.

Re: New tool day!


Mud consistency is the main thing, it needs to be fairly loose. And as you run the angle try to make sure you don't block the outlet of the mudrunner by having it on an angle. When you put the angle head on move it around and have a look at the outlet, and you will see what I mean.
Then match your speed and the mud flow.

Re: New tool day!

Ok I tried it and the beads disintegrated in my face!
So I turned the blade and that made a huge dif!
But I bought this thing from the USA and I'm f*cked if I can get a finer tooth blade for it here! I contacted the person 2 ask for a bit of help on this but looks like its a case of take money and run!
Any of u guys could help would b much appreciated
(the prob im having is its got like a d on the blade so it fits on the spindle and I cant get then no where) Can I use a blade with the same diameter without the d part?

I can't see why not, as long as you can nip it up tight. It is not like you are cutting timber and are going to jam the blade.
